Database Desktop, Min, Max, Default, Picture...?

I assume you are working with Paradox tables. Pictures are not supported by
Delphi.  The others are.  The default is filled in automatically when you
insert a new record.  If a value is outside the allowable range and
exception will be raised.

If the compoent is aware of them they can be used.  The standard
Delphi Tfields will use Minimum and Maximum valchecks.  Pictures are
not used and Tfields have thier own defult property.

Some 3rd party components inculting componets with InfoPowerUtilities
support using Pictures from tables.
